Background image in page layout

Postby Nick-Metcalfe on Fri Jun 11, 2021 5:34 am

Afternoon,

I have a background image on a page layout, i would like to move the background image a bit lower on the page but cannot see how this can be done.

Also i would like to manipulate the image to be across the whole page but can't seem to find the setting to resize the image either.

Hi,

I think as far as background images go, you are stuck with the default settings in the Page Properties dialog (https://help.madcapsoftware.com/flare20 ... ttings.htm). To repeat or not, and position (left, right, center) etc. These are pretty limited and changing the X/Y position to a mm value in the page layout file itself doesn't work.

So I think you've two options...
1. In an image editor, change the background image itself so it is the same physical size as your page. Set it with a transparent background and place your image element wherever you want on the page. Then place it as a background image centered on the page.
2. Use a decoration frame instead - either add content to the decoration frame using F2, or right click the frame and select a background image for that frame. You'll then be able to position the frame (and also image) wherever you want in the page layout.

Hope that helps,
Rob
